Ohio’s Toledo Area Humane Society is offering a $5000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for fatally injuring a young puppy. According to the animal welfare agency, a witness who intervened on behalf of the puppy saw kids kicking the pup around in an alley off of Dorr Street in Toledo.
The victimized puppy
The injured puppy is described as a female, black and tan mixed breed pup who was three months of age at the time of the attack. The puppy suffered a broken back, broken ribs and internal injuries. According to the shelter, the puppy passed away due to the severity of her injuries.
Stephen Heaven, President/CEO of the Toledo Area Humane Society said “what makes this barbaric crime even more abhorrent is that, apparently, there were adults standing around watching.”
The Toledo Area Humane Society is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the successful prosecution of the individuals responsible for this puppy’s death. Any information should be directed to the TAHS cruelty department, at 419-482-7103. All information received will remain confidential.
